Editorial Reviews

'Sassy' made fantastic records for Mercury in the Fifties & Sixties, recording historic jazz performances as well as popular material that cemented her, along with Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington & Carmen McRae, as America's finest interpreter of song. This Millennium Series collection features her Mercury chart hit "Broken-Hearted Melody" & her classic version of "Misty," plus her renditions of well-known American standards, many of them hard to find.

Do you want to know what real vocal jazz is all about? Do you want to listen to a lady who has class, who was the Billie Holiday of the 40's - 60's, and has vocal chops not heard in today's singers? Look no further. Sarah's style is so perfect and crystal clear that anybody who loves good singers (rock, soul, jazz) will really enjoy giving this a listen. This is the best Sarah Vaughan collection around, and it does her justice.

"Hey There" and "It Could Happen To You" feature a beautiful duet with one of the best choirs out there, the Sevend Saaby Choir. They were recorded in 1963, are wonderful and fit right in with the compilation. Bull Moose Jackson joins Sarah on "Broken Hearted Melody," a 1950s-like rock version of this classic song. The guests sound great, and Sarah is at her very best. Top notch voice and nice 24.bit remastering job. *Highly Reccommended!*

Overall Sarah Vaughan is a wonderful singer. If you liked this one, check out these other Sarah Vaughan CDs:

Ken Burns JAZZ Collection

The Essential Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Vaughan & Clifford Brown

I LOVE all those CDs. But my all-time favorite, the one that's in the CD player the most is by far this one. Sassy is unique and this CD does a great job representing her.

I have listened to Sarh Vaughan since the sixties when she had a hit single with "Broken Hearted Melody". Some of her singing was to "soul like" for my taste. However, after listening to the "samples" on the the Amazon Product page, I was sold. Her voice was smooth, her phrasing crisp, and the arrangements on these tracks were excellent. Her renditions of "Day by Day" and "Someone to Watch Over Me" were "lush" and in the best tradition of "torch songs". All of the selections are the best I've ever heard by her. That's why the CD was titled "The Best of Sarah Vaughan". If you like great orchestration, great string arrangements and the silky soft voice of a female torch singer, you'll love this album. When listening to this CD, I can close my eyes & imagine me back in my late teens & early twenties with that "hot" date listening to this music on a late night drive. A brief escape from the reality of old age.

Just to be clear -- this is three stars out of five on a "Sarah Vaughan" rating scale. Before I heard this disk I was relatively unfamiliar with her orchestral arrangements -- compared to her small ensemble performances, I'm tempted to classify this disk as "pop music." Her daring and touching phrasing and her standing as a musician who used her voice as an instrument does not come to the forefront here.

If you want to hear Sarah in all of her splendor then your wait is over. This particular compilation is sweetly and thoughtfully arranged. It offers us Sarah at her best. Just kick back, put your feet up on the coffee table, close your eyes and listen and wonder at the great wonder that is Sarah Vaughan. Buy this CD and please, please continue to ask the music industry to keep re-releasing and re-mastering the masters of music.

Sarah Vaughn sang beautifully and she remains one of the very greatest songbirds ever. Her ability to deliver a tune with a jazzy or soulful style impresses me greatly; and this is a fine album for her fans even though it is a bit brief at roughly 36 minutes long. However, everything we do get on this CD is top-notch quality; Sarah's sophisticated phrasing combined with her timing and her excellent diction made her singing very, very special. In addition, the quality of the sound on this CD is excellent and the artwork is nicely done even though it is rather standard for this CD series.

All the songs and ballads on this album are excellent. "Someone to Watch over Me" has Sarah squarely in the spotlight; and her voice is just beautiful to hear. The strings are used very well in the accompanying musical arrangement and "Someone to Watch over Me" is a terrific number to start off this CD. "I've Got a Crush on You" again features Sarah in her natural element; she could sell songs like this without even trying--and that's quite a feat! I love it. In addition, Sarah aces "Day by Day;" her delivery of "Day by Day" is flawless and the arrangement is very memorable, to say the least.

"Misty" shines brighter than silver and gold combined in Sarah Vaughn's capable hands; Sarah makes this ballad all her own with her exquisite performance that leaves me wanting to replay this tune on my CD player over and over again! This music is all THAT good. "Honey" is very well done; and I also enjoy Sarah's treatment of "A Foggy Day." "A Foggy Day" just couldn't be better and that's grand. "Days of Wine and Roses" gets the royal treatment from Sarah who sings this to perfection--and beyond!

I had some albums of Sarah Vaughan when I was a young girl. Her talent is timeless. I loved every song on the CD.

I knew of Sarah Vaughan prior to buying this CD along with her CD with Clifford Brown. Here she makes some of the standard jazz tunes her own with grace and beauty. This CD is about her voice and about the songs. Her disc with Clifford Brown is undoubtedly about the music and the ensemble. It has incredible subtlty and depth. I think I did see her live once at a point in my life when I was too young to fully appreciate her magic. Wherever great musicians go after they move on, I wish her the best and thanks for what she did.
